Wildlife Photo: A Pair of Grey Herons (Ardea cinerea)
These birds, the largest Heron in Europe (ARKive Org) live in Okinawa, Japan, too.
With that pointed bill they can grab a fish or, spear it. Fish are what they usually eat.
But, if they get real hungry, they might eat furry animals, too.
For any non-believers, who don't think a heron would eat a rabbit, I found this for you.
A wildlife photographer in Holland captured photos of the action.
He saw an Ardea cinerea (Grey Heron) grab a baby rabbit by the ears.
The heron flew off, to find some water and drown the critter.
Then, swallowed the whole thing !
Go have a look at the Daily Mail UK, if you'd like to see it.
